Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has announced his debut solo album will launch this summer.

The country-inspired record is titled We’re All Somebody From Somewhere and it’ll be released on July 15. The singer streamed the track Red, White & You earlier this year.

And he’s confirmed that among the 15 tracks on the record, which was recorded in Nashville, will be a “darker, countryfied” take on Aerosmith hit Janie’s Got A Gun, which originally appeared on the band’s 1989 album Pump.

Tyler tells Rolling Stone: “I believe y’all are gonna listen to this stuff and you’re gonna agree with me that it fell from a star.

“I had nothing to do with this shit – it’s just Nashville. There’s something so magical about this town and me writing with all these people.”

In addition, Tyler has announced a run of live dates which will take place in smaller venues across North America under the banner Steven Tyler… Out On A Limb.

The singer continues: “It’s a very living room thing to play small venues – it’s a little more personal.

“I get to talk to people and be up-close and personal, and tell them how the music business is a dark trench – a dark, dirty, money trench. And talk about where I get my inspiration from and talk about the new songs on the record.”

A full tracklist will be revealed in due course.

In 2015, the singer admitted his Aerosmith bandmates were “not happy” about his solo album, as it resulted in the band cancelling most of their 2016 tour plans, according to guitarist Brad Whitford.
